We’ve had quite a bit lately about the USBC (of course it helps when events are right here in town) but that doesn’t mean the United States is the only nation to crown its barista champion in the last couple of weeks.

Uganda also has a new national barista champion. Barista Robert Mbabazi recently won the second-ever championship in Kampala. You can read the details here.

Congratulations Robert! See you in Atlanta!
